This is great information!!! As things are always changing on Earth, it would be nice to compare this image to future images. We can see if the Earth is getting greener due to heating up or the rate of agricultural land is going away. Now, does this image takes into effect that some areas are GREEN but NOT sustainable for agriculture land? I also wondering if the deserts are growing?

Is a really high-res picture available for download somewhere perhaps? Would love to (APA certified ofcourse) use this in a presentation

This is a brilliant concept/development, not just for scientific purposes but for social awareness too. Such maps should be made viral online and distributed across social media sites to create awareness among people. Though it'll be a drop in the ocean, it would do some good to the earth if its inhabitants start behaving more responsibly.
